Have you tried the b/c patch?

Did you like it? Why or why not? Did it make you gain weight?

  • Again, no weight gain and the only issue I had was that the sticky stuff tended to collect lint like a bandaid.

  • I used it for 2 years. I liked it, but I did have an issue with it falling off. I never got pregnant and no I didn't gain weight on it.

  • My favorite. You can't use it over a certain weight or it doesnt work. I had no side effects but my sister got lumps in her armpits that were painful.

  • I actually like the ring better since you put it in only once a month unlike the patch which you changed every week but I like sex so the ring had to go.

  • Yes and I hated it! It never stayed on.

  • i don't understand how ppl had problems with it falling off. i had problems pulling it off at the end of the week cause it was so sticky. thats why i stopped. i hated pulling it off like a super glue bandaid every week. i like the nuvaring so much better. no weight gain or pregnancy with either bc

  • And you also have to be a certain weight to even use it fyi if you are over a certain weight they won't give it to you
